"rom8x" is an excellent dumping program - its method is unique to any other ROM dumper I've seen. It does not dump directly via a cable itself; instead, it creates AppVars on the calculator, which can then be (quite easily) transferred using any standard linking program like "TiLP" or "TI Connect".
The TI-84 series has been notoriously hard to ROM dump, in my opinion. Yet with "rom8x", I was able to dump my TI-84+ SE and get a valid ROM in a matter of minutes just by following the README instructions. I was up and running with a virtual 84+ Silver Edition on "TilEm".
If you need a calculator ROM, it seems "rom8x" is currently the best and easiest way to go. Just follow the clear, concise directions and you can't go wrong. Don't let the low 0.2 version number fool you!
My overall rating: 9.9/10
